The Queen for the Day this week at SCS is Lori (aka saintsrule). Unfortunately I was not acquainted with Lori's work. I was amazed and found so much inspiration in her gallery. This is the sweet card that I CASEd! I loved the soft pastel with the gray.
This butterfly. that I stamped with the new Smoky Slate, was sitting on my table. It hadn't even made it into the UFO box. It was a test piece for the inside of one of the upcoming Stamp Stack cards. I colored it with So Saffron ink and a blender pen.
Note: To get softer and more even color, swipe the marker on a clear block or a plastic lid and pick up the color with a blender pen. I go all over the image once and then go back over parts of it again to add a little more color.
I thought it would be fun to add a little sparkle so I outlined all the wing sections with a glitter pen. See the sparkle?
CASology's challenge this week is
Butterflies are free to fly about and we don't have to pay to enjoy their beauty.
